Is cargo screened for explosives in other countries?

I think almost everyone here thinks that cargo should be screened for explosives before going on airplanes.

But now I'm starting to wonder how well that would work. Is it being done in any other countries?

The TSA seems to open up half the checked bags it gets its hands on, ostensibly looking for bombs, but apparently looking for everything from electronics to (and especially) drugs.

If it starts screening cargo is it going to be tearing open mail and packages wholesale?

There is some limited cargo screening in EU, but in most cases, it is all virtually non-existent.
